Press / Reviews

"Ryan's voice is a lovely soprano instrument. Her songs have that mix of Victorian floral luxury and a post Kate Bush sense of drama that might remind you of Sarah McLachlan or Tori Amos. Wistful songs with occasional small surprises." Dan Maryon, Option Magazine

[Diaphanous] is "a jazz-accented collection [focusing] on Ryan's register leaping voice. It's a mostly successful formula, with Ryan recalling femm-pop heroes...such as Tori Amos and Kate Bush." Richard Martin, The Seattle Weekly

"Ryan is elegant and graceful with a voice that rises to dizzying heights."Tom Scanlon, The Seattle Times

"Ryan's voice is a velvet pleasure, her music an easy-listening collaboration of jazz and floral tones recalling memories of Kate Bush and Enya with a modern twist of all the usual female artist suspects: Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan and the like." Dan Larsen,
